IN LONDON this summer we had lunch one day with “Bartimeus,” whose stories of the sea and of life aboard warships have a style and distinction all their own. “Bartimeus” is a Paymaster'Commander in the Royal Navy and a thoroughly Good Companion.

WE WERE listening to a number of “representative citizens” discussing the day’s news. They talked about the Ontario election, the latest crisis in Europe, the war in China, the stock market and infantile paralysis—all interesting subjects.

IN THE United States there used to be an organization which made a business of whispering. For a fee, it sent its agents out to mingle with crowds, eat in restaurants, ride on subways and trains. Entering into conversations, they spread rumors about the products of their clients’ competitors.

IN THE hectic days of the post-war boom, when Hollywood film producers, in common with a lot of other purveyors of public entertainment, were capitalizing the devil-may-care philosophy then rampant, there came into being in the United States the Legion of Decency movement.

"BARTIMEUS"
CAPTAIN LANSDALE closed the novel he was reading and jerked it irritably across the deck of his day cabin. “Bilge!” he ejaculated aloud. He lay back in the chintz-covered armchair with his feet on another chair and his white tunic unbuttoned.

John W. S. McCullough
IF YOU KNEW of a disease which every year kills twice as many persons as scarlet fever, tuberculosis, diphtheria and motor cars combined; which produces 13 per cent of the insane; which kills 7½ per cent of all those dying in mental hospitals; which causes 83 per cent of the deaths of babies born of infected and largely innocent mothers; which accounts for a high proportion of the sudden deaths of men in their prime; which in its disastrous effects far outranks the casualties of war, and which at the same time is perfectly preventable and curable by the means at our disposal—would you say “Hush”?

CHARLES LUGRIN SHAW
THE JAPANESE invasion of China has loomed black in the world’s headlines for weeks. But how about the Japanese invasion of Canada? Not a military onslaught, of cóurse, but an invasion nevertheless—a quiet, methodical, peaceful business affair that, unknown to most Canadians, has been going on for a long time.

SOME FOLK, the kind who don’t believe in the pik-gee-gees, say Randy Corrigan left the woods and turned fanner for love of a yellow-haired girl, but that’s not right. The yellow-haired girl had her part in it, of course, but Randy Corrigan himself told me the little men drove him from the woods.

THE CONTENTS of the plane’s cabin on the morning of departure from Great Bear Lake would have been rated as fantastic on any airway in Christendom except those which ply the North West Territories. They included, among other items, three sled dogs and a cariole sleigh, snowshoes, rifles, lengths of hand steel, sledge hammers, dynamite, gasoline, half a dozen cases of canned goods, and the makings of a tent.

THIS LETTER is being written under somewhat unusual circumstances. The Ritz Carlton Hotel has everything but a writing room. It has a fountain and a stream running through a garden restaurant. It has an orchestra which plays soft Viennese music more slowly than any orchestra ever played before.

M’SIEU,” said Bouché very timidly, “will you not come to my house for an hour and drink tea? My family will be honored.” Neil Campbell sent him a friendly grin. “That is kind of you, but—” “But what, m’sieu?” There was a moment of hesitation. Two days had passed since Macdonald had given him the autocratic order never to enter the clerk’s house, and the more Neil thought of it the less he liked it.

THERE ARE too many deep-rooted false beliefs concerning dogs. For, barring disease and accident —and even these sometimes come under the same heading—well-meaning ignorance is responsible for most canine ills, and a great many of their misdemeanors and tragedies.

IN Harper's Magazine, Nathaniel Peffer asserts that Japan will never realize its ambition to bestride even the Eastern world much less the whole world, and in an analysis of that country’s economic position he tells why. Until now Japan has had only the advantages of Westernism — wealth, power, extension of range, comfort, conveniences, and efficiency.

THE INVALUABLE work done by Royal Commissions is commented upon in the New York Times Magazine in the following terms: Royal commissions of enquiry, though they may seem very slow-moving and deliberate, though years may elapse before their conclusions materialize in the form of official policy, though in some cases nothing much comes of their exhaustive studies unless public opinion or rebellion forces action, have played a notable role in British legislative history.
